Re: Tudor Oyster SubMariner 7923

As others have said, the watches are not the same, and will be valued differently by collectors. Besides that, an auction valuation is nothing more than an estimate. It may sell for less, or much more. Have you asked the auction house how they came to their valuation? I think that would be the best ...

Re: Best ever comment on a watch by a customer?

The 556 wouldn't be a terrible choice for a 1 watch collection. I've always admired the 556, although my personal preference is for the Arabic dial. The 5561 however, would probably be a better all-rounder.

Re: C60 Bronze Strap suggestions

I like the idea, but I agree that the blue needs to be a closer match to the dial. As for the stitching and keepers, I'd consider going a little darker, closer the the colour that you will see as the bronze patinas. *Edit* I'm thinking something closer to this brown leather that I have mine on curre...

Re: Jan sale

My opinion is that the leather makes it a little bit less "casual". I might either buy a watchgecko Horween or maybe one from LongIslandWatch, or even Martù. I will also try to make one as I have a piece of brown pull-up leather that has this vintage look. Agreed. A nice pull-up leather like Chrome...

Re: C65 Homage

The crown and case finishing look poor at best. Hmmm, theres a clear difference between inspiration and outright copy/fake. As they arent using the brands logo/name/trademarks apparently its a 'homage'. As someone who's invested 3 years capital and resources in developing a software product only to ...

+1 for the Glycine Airman 18. I have one and it fits my 160mm wrists comfortably.

Re: Jan sale

Hi Lavain, Nice purchase this C60 Bronze! Was wondering what kind of strap would you pu on It, as I am myself looking for a leather one as an alternative to the hybrid. Thank you! Hi Ondris, I'm not a fan of leather on dive watches, but for the bronze I would look at a light to medium brown leather...

Re: Should I buy a watch winder ?

I don't own one, and personally only two good use cases for having one. 1. You only wear 2-3 watches in a daily rotation. In this case having one might make sense rather than winding and setting each of your watches multiple times per week. 2. You own a very complicated watch, such as a perpetual ca...

Re: Jan sale

My January sale purchases arrived yesterday. I'm honestly quite impressed. I'd heard a lot of talk about the new packaging, but I was still very impressed with it. From the new distinctive watch box (huge wow factor for the first time buyer), to the really slick, fully recyclable origami cardboard s...

Re: CW hints at what's new in 2020

June 2020 sees the 15th anniversary of the launch of the original C5 and C3 watches. I have no insider knowledge of any plans, but it wouldn't surprise me to see this commemorated in some way. That makes sense AVO. As the current range already includes a C3 and C5, perhaps the introduction of a C5A...

Re: C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 / patina

I think you went too far with the focred patination, but it doesn't matter for 2 reasons:
1. It's your watch. If you like it, that's what matters (spousal opinion not withstanding).
2. It's bronze. If you change your mind, you can return it to it's original condition with relative ease.

Re: Delivered today

Very neat book. To have a record of virtually every Speedmaster released is pretty amazing. I know it's called Moonwatch Only, but does it include the CoAxial and Reduced models as well as the Speedmaster Professional "Moonwatch" models?

Re: Forum Names

I love wine and my name is after my favourite white varietal. IMO and candidly, Viognier is the most underrated white grape varietal in the marketplace! It is a very good varietal, and Canada (particularly BC) produces some excellent ones. Recently had a nice California Viognier from Sonoma, but I'...

Re: Delivered today

I bought it from Booksetc at £102
That's a good bit better than the almost $400 at Amazon!
If it covers most of the Moonwatch variants, it must be a fairly long book :o
Does the book include yearly updates with all the LE's?
